Brock cancels course to be taught by professor disciplined for sexual harassment

harassment education crime misconduct

Brock University has cancelled a history course that was to be taught by a professor who was disciplined following a sexual harassment investigation.

David Schimmelpenninck was scheduled to teach a non-compulsory second-year course during the Winter 2019 term following an almost three-year absence from the classroom. The absence was a result of discipline following an investigation into sexual harassment, the university confirmed to CBC News.

A statement issued by the university Wednesday said the decision to cancel the course was a personnel matter and Brock would not be commenting further.

"The university takes very seriously the right of every member of the Brock community to work and study in a respectful and safe environment," the statement added.

"Brock will be accelerating the previously scheduled review of its Sexual Violence and Harassment Policy."  (more...)
